Become a Campus Compact VISTA Host Site

The application period for 2022-23 AmeriCorps VISTA applications from potential host sites is now live — we are now accepting host site project applications! 

Application Deadline: The priority deadline will be 11:59PT on May 25, 2022 with rolling applications considered after that date 

Please note that the RFP, Performance Measure Guide, and application have all been revised.

Campus Compact is seeking new host sites and/or projects as our VISTA program expands. Campus Compact has applied to AmeriCorps for additional resources and is awaiting their decision. Host Site selection and awards are contingent on final appropriations and approval by AmeriCorps.

Program Description: With a broad vision of higher education as social change agents and a belief that addressing issues like poverty is essential to the vision of the public purpose of higher education, the Campus Compact AmeriCorps VISTA Program seeks to activate higher education institutions and their partners to work together to make an impact on poverty on their campuses and in their communities. Our AmeriCorps VISTA program places AmeriCorps members for one-year terms of service on campuses and/or with their community partners to build capacity for high impact programs, organizational approaches, and collective impact efforts that improve outcomes for low-income college students, low-income K-12 students, and low-income community members across the United States.

Eligibility: The Campus Compact VISTA Project is a national project that is open to all member institutions or their partners. For the 2022-23 program year, Campus Compact will have local affiliate Compacts who leverage AmeriCorps resources in Iowa, Kentucky, Maine, Minnesota, Montana, New Hampshire, Ohio, and Oregon. Applicants from those states should consult with their local Compact affiliate prior to applying to our project as the affiliate Compact may have an AmeriCorps program that aligns with the desired project focus area. Organizations and institutions may receive AmeriCorps resources from multiple projects.
